This hardcover copy was represented as "good condition" and came to me pretty much in perfect condit

I'm currently reading this to my 5 year old and she loves it because she can relate to Matilda being so young as well, even if she can't yet understand all of the themes or even the words yet. As for the condition of this hardcover edition, I am highly impressed. It's practically perfect and I am very excited to add this to my collection.

She Loved It!!!!

I got this and another book for my niece on her birthday and the first thing she is get so excited to read it. She absolutely loves it

Awesome Children's Book

"Matilda" was my favorite book in 2nd grade. So much so that every time I see it in any store, I HAVE to buy another copy. Matilda was my first full length book that I read over and over and over again. Even when it was falling apart, I still kept it, and lugged it to school every single day. It is very well crafted and teaches young children to believe in themselves- don't let anyone hold you down- you can achieve anything!


This is the kind of book that lets you know your not the only person out there not understood. It comes from the heart and tells the truth about some kids and it's a very good book. I'd recommend this book to any person of all ages. It's the kind of book that takes you along the hand and it's like your right there in the book. Roald Dahl is a very,good writer and Quentin Blake is right there with him when it comes to art.

Reading aloud pleasure.

I'm out of the country with my 6 years old daughter for a week. When we travel together we always bring enough reading stuff, and our main book this time is Matilda - a fantastic book about a fantastic girl. I have read all of the Roald Dahl books for my kids several time, Matilda has always been and still is my favorite :-)Matilda is a small girl with extraordinary talents. Already when she is three years old she starts visiting the local library and reads all the books there, starting with the children's books, keeping on with the world classics. Matilda's parents are very neglective, and refuse to see any of Matilda's talents. But Matilda is a fighter and finds her own very creative and very funny ways to get revenge.Matilda is a funny book, showing a girls fight for her individuality, in a typical RoaldDahlish way. I love it, and all my kids have loved it as well. My youngest daughter is only six, and should be a little too young for the book. But still the book works perfectly for her. The chapters are quite long, but none of us manage to stop after just one chapter. Being on holiday, we can sleep long in the mornings, and can read for a long time in the evenings.An extra pluss with the book is all the fantastic recommandations of future books it gives us. Dahl has made a wonderful list of the books Matilda read at the library.Britt Arnhild Lindland
